This is an ok-ok book. Even though the 101 mistakes quoted were globally valid, the tips doesn't come handy that much. What I take from this book? Recognizing the common mistakes women tend to make at work place. What I can do with it? When you know the root cause you can find solution for it; in that way, based on the cultural context the solution to each mistake can be derived based on self evaluation and on the basis of cultural background.
Goed boek! Stapsgewijs lezen zorgt ervoor dat je direct zin krijgt om er mee aan de slag te gaan door het in de praktijk toe te passen. Ondanks dat het boek 'revised en updated' is vraag ik me af en toe wel af hoe actueel sommige tips nog zijn. Zo vraag ik me af of de regel dat een 'kortpittig' kapsel je verder op weg helpt in je carrière nu nog steeds op gaat ; )
Dit boek geeft zoveel inzicht over je eigen gedrag als vrouw en wat voor gevolgen dit voor je carrière kan hebben. Hierdoor ben ik me veel bewuster van wat ik doe en kan ik de tips ook toepassen. Een aanrader voor iedere vrouw!
